Sergeant Gavin Jardine said: “Our city centre is a safe and enjoyable place to go out in so antisocial behaviour of any kind will never be tolerated.
“Numerous warnings have been issued following this recent incident, while a number of youths will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
“My message is very clear – if you think it’s okay to come into the city centre and cause trouble, then you can think again.”
Police said they would carry out extra patrols of Union Street to deter unwanted behaviour.
